    Patronising bastard!
    The spotty twat behind the counter in HMV today called me "kid".

    Kid! He very quickly got a face full of provisional driving license.

I was getting rolls at the self-service bakery yesterday morning (don't judge, it's the only thing open on Sundays!), and the kid at the register remarked on how it was lovely of me to get some football-shaped ones for my sons.

...I don't even.

Every time I go out with my nephews, people assume they're mine. I'm very quick to correct them!

I answered the door the other week to some cowboy builder. Except he started with "Are your mum and dad thinking about re-doing the drive...?"

....He was very quickly told whose house this is.

(Admittedly it was lunchtime and I was still in my pyjamas, but still.)

On the other hand, gotta be careful how you open the door... a colleague told me how he'd once spotten someone coming up the driveway, dressed as a Jehovah's Witness might dress. Tim had been about to get in the shower, so was naked save for a towel round his waist. He ran down the stairs, threw open the door and yelled (in an American accent) "Halleluiah brother, I've been saved!".

The man blinked, then said he was calling from the local Conservative party, and would Tim be voting in the upcoming election?

So the misunderstanding can go both ways ;-)

I'd be delighted with that. Life is different when you're thirty.

Oh shut up, you old man. You'll be moaning about young punks running on your lawn next. (If you had a lawn, of course.) :-p

That got me thinking who would be the best Brit equivalent of Clint Eastwood's "Get off my lawn!" moment in Gran Torino.

Ray Winstone? I'd sure as hell stay off of his lawn.

Kid?! That's insulting at pretty much any age.
